blue collar and older whites. even with paul ryan on the ticket, a 60% of seniors voted for romney. in the long run, i think those red states are problematic for democrats. look at north carolina. in north carolina or virginia, obama's numbers among blue- collar whites are unbelievably low. they are in the high-20's or 30's. in the long run, i do think there is this pattern. the sun belt will be more important than the west about. they do have the incredible ability to hang on to -- the shift will be to states that have the same social forces of rising diversity and rising education levels. >> we have a slight disagreement. obama did well among these groups in 2008. democrats do well among white blue-collar voters in the midwest. there are union presidents and other things that give them a boost. there is a slight fracture of the automobile bailout. ohio did not look that different. i think of no bailout might have helped a bit around the edges. boy, running against and john mccain in 2008, barack obama did well among those groups in those states. he did well in iowa. he overperfor

. he is paul ryan's foil in on the budget committee in the house. again, a very young sort of take charge, charismatic leader, raised a lot of money. he ran the democratic congressional campaign committee for two cycles, so he has a lot of pull within the caucus. it's complicated a little bit by the fact that he and hoyer are friends, and they both represent the same state, they've run within the same circles. van hollen was the assistant to the speaker in nancy pelosi's last term as speaker, so that seems to be the surface that bubbles to the top as well. debbie wasserman schultz, the democratic committee chairwoman. nobody does that job for too long. she is looking for a way into leadership, but right now i hesitate to use terms like the smart money, but the smart money seems to be if pelosi wants to anoint a successor or get behind somebody, it would be van hollen. >> thank you. so that shakespearean drama makes what's going on in the senate look tame by comparison. what's going on if. >> i think it is pretty tame. obviously, with the senators adding two seats, harry reid, chuck
last night. >> was that the campaign paul ryan would have run? >> oh, zbogosh, you know, i thi when you join a ticket three months out, you join somebody's campaign. i was really impressed with the way that mitt and ann brought us into the fold. so i was very encouraged by that. i really enjoyed it. and i wanted to run a big campaign on ideas. we did that. >> the, oh, gosh, part there. also in the abc interview, ryan said there's a silver lining to losing, which is more time with his kids. >> just this last weekend i got to go to both of my boys' basketball games, i got to go to two of my daughters' volleyball games. >> so there's an upside to losing? >> we are a very close family. >> ryan said his kids are relieved they won't have to move and change schools. in other interviews, ryan has raised eyebrows because he attributed the obama victory in a rise in the urban vote. >> it is nice to see that's what they focus on now, the fact to spend time with the family and the kids say, oh, thank goodness, right? >>> 38 minutes past the hour. temper flaring, people slivering, still heads are ro

a question by paul ryan, this was years ago. paul ryan posed the question, and he said wouldn't it be a good idea to introduce personal savings accounts? wouldn't that help put social security on a more stable, secure footing going forward? wouldn't this improve the solvency of the system? and alan greenspan gave what had to have come as quite a surprise to congressman ryan, a very surprising response. he said, well, i wouldn't say that social security is on unsound footing today because there's nothing to prevent the federal government from creating all the money it wants and paying it out to someone. that's a quote. there's nothing to prevent the government from creating all the money it wants and paying it out to someone. the issue, he said, is will the real resources be there in the future for retirees when they're needed? so he turned the focus away from the financial resources, which he says can always be there, to the real resources which is what we should be focusing on, employing people, producing the capital, the goods that are going to be there for the next generation, having the
